Photos included to show padding and how it fits on the shock mount.
The filter is also heavier than it's own stem, causing for some lopsided leaning. While I like this product for what it can do, I ultimately find it easier to just purchase the appropriate foam windshield for my Blue Yeti and use that. None of the awkwardness and an even better result from reducing both the hard breaths of my speech but also overall airflow in my work space.
If you do take that route, though, be patient when manually stretching out the windshield or you're going to rip it and render the advice worthless. In a direct comparison between the two, it took me two minutes to install the pop filter v.s. twenty-five minutes of gently pulling and stretching the foam to fit the windshield on my mic. Despite the time inconvenience, ultimately, I preferred to package the pop filter back up and just leave it on a shelf.
-Does its job. Blocks plosives or "p-pops" without altering the sound very significantly. The wire mesh is actually two meshes. One is a match to the Blue Yeti microphone, while the second is a thinner "screen door" type screen for enhanced wind blocking. It does the job, and it's built to last.
-Very attractive. Much like the Yeti itself, the metallic-and-silver design is a modern staple, this will look attractive on any desk or mounting scenario. the wire look also feels a bit more old-school than a modern nylon filter.
-The install on the Blue Yeti is awful. Sure, you can kind of wedge it in place as-is, but it's clearly not designed for the company's most famous product. Honestly what you want to do is all the adjustment knobs on the pop filter, and pull off one of the adjustment screws on your Yeti. Line up the farthest hole of the microphone mount, and screw back in the Yeti adjustment knob (keep all washers on the adjustment knob, they're spacers). Now you have a securely mounted, adjustable swing arm. Just put the end of the pop filter's adjustable wire into the mouth you would normally use to mount the unit, and tighten the screw. This is a much more secure assembly than the stock method.
-The adjustable metallic wire is only okay. Although it's certainly built to last, it barely has the flexibility necessary to get in place or stay there. However, once properly set and given a bit to settle, it does hold and that's what counts.
Overall, look up an install video on YouTube, and then buy this filter. It's gorgeous, durable, and it works.
The biggest issue people seem to have with this pop filter come only from those who buy it with BLUE's most popular budget microphone, the Yeti (or the Yeti pro). This problem is that the pop filter is designed for mic stands, not the desk mount that comes with the Yeti. This is true of every pop filter ever made, however, and is not indicative of product quality. Blue didn't make this to fit the Yeti stand. It will fit on one quite easily if you think about it, but it is not designed to. If you look at the main picture of the item, you will see its intended use: Attached to a mic stand, either a floor or a table mount will do. The clip is universal.
Also of note, it was much larger than I though it was going to be. This thing easily shields the entirety of the oversize yeti microphones, and should work well with anything you use it with.
Pros: High quality metal construction, Curved for maximum pop-shielding-ness, Large surface area, WORKS
Cons: High list price (Don't pay full MSRP for it)

I also own a Blue baby bottle microphone. All and all I'm glad I chose to stay true Blue. (No pun intended)
